Officially, Walter Hamada is leaving DC Films!
After four years as the president of DC Films, Walter Hamada has vacated his office on the Warner Bros. set.
According to reports, Walter Hamada has formally resigned from his position as the head of DC Films at Warner Bros. Discovery. Following a fifteen-year tenure with the studio, his parting package is presently being finalized by senior WBD officials. The trade claims that Hamada has packed up his office and hasn’t participated in recent meetings, indicating that his departure has been planned for a while.
With the release of Aquaman in 2018, which has raked in over $1.4 billion worldwide, Walter Hamada began his leadership of DC Films. Aquaman is presently the highest-grossing DC Comics film to date. The Batman, which he most recently directed, earned $769.2 million globally, an amazing sum given that film was released during the epidemic.
The co-chairs and CEOs of Warner Bros. Pictures, Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, will currently be in charge of DC Films. WBD CEO David Zaslav has been unsuccessful in his search for a Kevin Feige-like figure to oversee the company’s DC properties. Producer Dan Lin was almost hired for the post, but discussions fell through in the first week of September.
According to recent reports, Walter Hamada was on the verge of leaving DC Films when executives at Warner Bros. Discovery decided to scrap the Batgirl movie and use it as a tax write-off. He was persuaded to stay on until the premiere of Black Adam, which takes place this week, by Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy.
